FACT’s Top 50 Albums of 2015

by Andrew Sacher


FACT published their 50 Best Albums of 2015 list and as always, it’s one of the more unique lists of the year. It’s loaded with high-quality electronic music, rap, R&B, indie, pop, and more, and you’re almost guaranteed to find something on it you haven’t heard of. It ranges from the Simon Cowell-assembled girl group Fifth Harmony to the underground New York rapper Junglepussy, and includes plenty of the in-between. Kendrick Lamar and Grimes are here, but they come in at the mere #3 and #5, respectively. Their #1 is a very unexpected pick, but a great album nonetheless (and one that does deserve some more love).

“Excuse the positivity, but was something in the water this year? 2015 felt like the best year for albums in a while,” their intro begins. Read what else FACT have to say here and check out the whole list below…
